From a Facebook conversation I've been having.
"How can we agree on funding for public programs when the GOP insists that we donâ€™t have enough money to fund them? How can they seriously believe thereâ€™s no money? There *is* money, we just spend much of it on the US military and tax breaks for corporations and the rich. Now, if we agreed on how much money goes to the Pentagon and tax breaks vs. food stamps and other forms of welfare, we maybe figure out something, BUTâ€¦"
That question is too broad. What public program is not getting enough money? It sounds to me like someone is bitching that they are not getting their abortion program funded.
Their abortion program?
I think this refers to Planned Parenthood through a lot of programs are cut.
The US is really not much different that NK in that The Military is the number one in both countries. The US happens to have more wealth, so they can still afford to pay for Social Security, Healthcare (for some), and Veterans. If the US keeps cutting public programs and continues to increase the military, well, that line between the two becomes thinner and thinner.
Here's another similarity: The US has The Highest
number of people in prison on the planet and those people work
while incarcerated. NK does the same thing.
My personal beef is that education keeps getting cut. Is it really surprised that we're having such problems with SJW's poor thinking skills when we no longer teach them reason, rhetoric, logic? Kids are crammed together in awful conditions to pass tests.
